WDC @ Nrityagram

It was a great day. Perfect weather for being outside. A tempo traveller full of eager artists. Lovely Nrityagram resonating with music in the rustic setting.....

Here is the fountain pen sketch I started and then completed at home.


Here are two that I made from photographs. After I completed the pen drawing there was yearning for colour and I added some dashes of it.

  •  Sunday started early for most of the jammers, and it was nice to see a good number of fresh-faced, eager jammers (after a long time), gathered at Cubbon Park.  
       Quaint stone constructions, thatched roofs,  very 'village' inspired, the place has a lot of charm.  For those who do pen and ink and detailed sketches this is the place to go.  Various textures, little niches housing small statues, images under shady trees -will have them salivating.

       A temple to the late Protima Bedi is at the entrance, near the yoga centre.  At the ticket counter we were
    informed  about the layout  of the place and the rules. Many were disappointed that permission was not granted
    to sketch the graceful dancers.  

       There were the Gurukuls where the dancer's were practicing- the senior's at Raymond Gurukul
    and the younger kids at the Children's Gurukul.  After a group photo we all dispersed to investigate,
    some going in to see Danseuse Surupa Sen coaching the seniors, other's getting started on their sketches.

       Since the place is closed on Mondays and public holidays, and the timings are 10 am to 2 pm, anyone interested
    in checkng out the place would do well to find out the details. 

    A few photos from the jam:
